Course Reserve Requests: To request an item be placed on course reserve, please use the Course Reserves Submission Form. At this time, we can process course reserve requests for ebooks, scans of portions of the print materials owned by the library, and instructor-provided scanned materials. Items will be placed electronically on reserve as a Canvas Reading List. For more information see our Canvas Reading Tool page. We will not be able to make copies of printed material or physical media available until after the library building reopens. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Typically, we are not able to purchase textbooks because publishers don’t make them available as an ebook for institutional access via libraries and/or they are cost-prohibitive. One alternative option is to adopt an OER textbook because they are free and easily accessible. Subject librarians can help you with locating an OER option.
When you access library electronic resources from off-campus, you need to use one of the following methods. Using OneSearch will automatically prompt the campus Network login.
1. Campus VPN (Recommended)
Setting up VPN (Virtual Private Network) on your personal computer allows students, faculty, and staff to access library resources from off-campus.
2. Library Login (Default)
When you are off-campus and click on library electronic resources, you will be prompted to login using the EZproxy Login screen (shown below). Login using your MyCalStateLA ID username and password.
